Axis & Allies in WWII Crossword Puzzle
December 7, 2014

Axis and Allies 1941 Board Game - RF Cafe63 years ago today marked the United States' entrance into World War II. Axis and Allied powers delineated foes and friends, respectively. This week's engineering crossword has as its theme Axis and Allied powers - all of whom are global trading partners nowadays. The 'Allied' powers term is clear enough, but where does the 'Axis' powers term originate? Merriam-Webster answers that in its 9th - and last, therefore least used - definition: "a point or continuum on which something centers <an axis of social power>."

Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
